Do you want to know one of the secrets to success. I recently read in "The Happiness Advantage" by Shawn Achor that, "It turns out that our brains are literally hardwired to perform at their best not when they are negative or even neutral, but when they are positive." Do you want to experience more fulfilling relationships? Do you want to perform better at work? Do you want to simply experience more joy? It appears that part of the answer lies in embracing positivity.
So, how can we foster positivity in our lives? One of my go-to's is a gratitude journal. There is so much going on in life. So many hurdles, so many challenges, so many things that simply don't turn out the way I had hoped. One of the ways that I persevere through these ups and downs is through gratitude. When I focus on the positive, it multiplies my joy and creates the habit to see all the gifts amidst the pain. Warm, cozy sheets to look forward to each night. Healthy legs that can hike up mountains and swim through streams. A schedule full of events that are productive and fulfilling. Ultimately, gratitude produces positivity, unlocking the ability to perform at my best. How can you incorporate positivity into your daily life?
